The original reference speaker of yesteryear is back, and built in the USA!
This listing is for a single speaker.
Available in singles or pairs, these passive speakers require an external amplifier.
After lengthy testing and remanufacturing our driver, we finally were able to achieve the purest sound equalling the sound of the original 5C Super Sound Cube. All components of our driver are made of the highest quality materials in the United States. The cabinet is built with black laminate and quality craftsmanship.
The 5C, which became famous in the 1970's and 80's and has been used in virtually every major recording studio worldwide, is still the undisputed industry standard for "real world" referencing in the recording studio.
Durability, flat full-range response, amazing power handling and portability have made AURATONES the Recording, Broadcasting, and Motion Picture industries favorite “mixdown monitors.” . . . for comparison and final mixes, auditioning, remotes, and reference standard speakers.

What We Think
We've been listening and comparing to original Auratones as well as current knockoffs, and the clear winner is the new 5C. It actually has high frequency response, and that focused midrange (with no crossover) which makes them so valuable. They also SOUND really nice, like a nice small hi-fi speaker should. It will instantly remind you of what you hear in the car, the grocery store, a clock radio and maybe a TV. They don't hide info either, rather they make things that stand out really stand out in the mix. Highly recommended, this is one of those out of the ballpark wins for all studios...now new again with full warranty.
